The eighth Ministerial Conference meetings of the Bali Process on People Smuggling, Trafficking in Persons and Related Transnational Crime were held over 8-10 February 2023 at the Adelaide Convention Centre. The Steering Group Meeting was co-chaired by Ms Lucienne Manton, Australian Ambassador for Counter Modern Slavery, People Trafficking and Human Trafficking and Pak Tri Triyati, Indonesian Director-General for Multilateral Affairs

The Steering Group sets the agenda for Ministerial Conferences, and includes Ministerial and Senior Official level representation from Australia, Indonesia, New Zealand and Thailand and senior representatives of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and the Regional Support Office of the Bali Process (RSO).

The group directs changes to the Bali Process governance – for example, determining any expansion to the Ad Hoc Group membership, and acts as an oversight mechanism across the Bali Process’ activities and priorities, with the Ad Hoc Group reporting to Bali Process Co-Chairs through the Steering Group.
